Woodland Trust and Friends team up for conservation efforts in National Park

On Wednesday, February 21st, 2024, the Friends of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs Chairman, John Urquhart, joined other volunteers for a day of tree planting at Glen Finglas estate. The event, organized by the Woodland Trust, is part of the ongoing efforts to create the Great Trossachs Forest National Nature Reserve.

During the second phase of the planting, 200 hazel and 70 oak trees were planted, bringing the total number of trees in the area to 150 oaks and 500 hazels. The planting took place on a west-facing slope with well-drained mineral soil, and the area was previously stock fenced in preparation for the planting. All planting stock used was sourced from seeds on the estate.

To ensure the success of the newly planted trees, the Friends will be working closely with conservation bodies in the National Park. They also plan to collaborate with the Woodland Trust in the future, with a volunteer “Make a Difference Day” in the works for the end of the year. The event will provide an opportunity for more tree planting on the estate, further contributing to the conservation efforts in the area.

The Friends of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs and the Woodland Trust are committed to preserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the area, and their partnership is a testament to their dedication to this cause.
